Which is better among ICML Extreme and Mahindra Bolero?
By: Ranjeet on 14 november 2014
Icml Extreme is available in two engine versions that of CRD- Fi and DI engines. CRD-Fi has 2.0L engine delivering 120PS power and 270Nm Torque.DI engine has same cc engine cc with turbocharger injection fuel supply system delivering power of 100PS and Torque of 240Nm. Mahindra Bolero is also available in two engine options that of DT and CRDe engines. with similar power and performances. Bolero is in since decades and has vast presence all over India. Hence there is considerably good demand for it is both as used MPV and as new one. ICML Extreme though offers tough competition in terms of power and performance, still has long way to go ahead in offering real competition for the same.
ICML Extreme and bolero both are having a very large number of variants, though both the engines are having a very good deal of price and they are almost similar on price. But the Mahindra bolero is a very popular MPV all the way than the ICML which a very few sales figures so far. Mahindra is a having a huge network in India and offers a very good deal for Indian customers. Bolero is not as much powerful as ICML.
Yes dear you said it well, even after having a very powerful engine and capacitive vehicle ICML extreme have to wait for a long time to even come in competition with Bolero. ICML is having better power and performance but Mahindra has proved its Bolero from a long time in India and has been considered as the most sturdy and reliable vehicle. However the maintenance cost is high for Mahindra still it is good looking and having better features.
ICML gives a very fair competition to Mahindra bolero in terms of engine and specifications but it has to go long way to compete the popularity and sales figures of Mahindra bolero which is at utmost in India. It is discoverable in every part of India but rather than the cities Bolero is more popular with the rural areas and small towns. The service availability and good services make sure that the customer will be repeated.
I am agreeing on the same but not only on sales and popularity Mahindra is also very good in terms of the mileage. ICML is having an average of 9 KMPL in real life scenarios whereas Mahindra bolero gives a very good mileage almost double if driven carefully. Only thing I see on lesser side with comparison to the ICML Extreme is the dimensions of the vehicles and power and torque.
ICML Extreme and Mahindra bolero are two magnificent models falling in the same category. Mahindra bolero and ICML Extreme has no comparison at all in any category. The ICML resembles more with the Toyota Qualis, but bolero is a complete different design but it is very popular with Indian peoples. So even I don’t see it as a competition as it cannot spread itself to the extent what Mahindra had did already.
Mahindra Bolero and ICML are two rivals with almost the same price and specifications, It’s just the ICML is having better power and performance. But the Mahindra is having a better mileage than the ICML extreme. I like Mahindra more than ICML for several reasons; out of them the first is the service and dealership network of Mahindra which has been spreaded all along the India. Second is popularity of the vehicle.
